Please spread to anyone (especially in the Netherlands or willing to relocate) interested in new media and migrant (Moroccan) youth. One aspect of the mixed methods data collection process will involve the analysis of online social networks. See www.uu.nl/wiredup for more information.

While the past several years have seen an increasing amount of research on the digital literacy practices of youth, within and well beyond the Netherlands, relatively little of this work to date has focused on immigrant youth and their productions and interpretations of social media (e.g. web logs, Hyves, YouTube, texting, Twitter, gaming). This project will provide a unique contribution to the field by developing ethnographic studies of youth as they use social media and integrate it into their everyday lives in the Netherlands. We are particularly interested in how digital literacy practices are used to produce identities and learning networks. What are the shapes and scales of new media networks for Moroccan immigrant youth? How are these new networks changing, and how are they related to social networks with longer histories (e.g., extended family, community)? How do networks formed through practices with social media support the development of local, national, and transnational identities? How do such networks also structure new social spaces for learning? These questions are addressed in this project through ethnographic research that will be augmented with other research methods, including social network analysis and survey data.
